What We Do

The Translational Research Technologies Core provides all NNE-CTR members with support for clinical and translational research through access to state-of-the-art tools and technologies. Through our partnerships with core facilities at MaineHealth (MH) and the University of Vermont (UVM), the highest quality current technologies are at your fingertips. The Core also provides any interested members with education and guidance about current and emerging technologies relevant to their research objectives.

The goals of the Translational Research Technologies Core are to:

  • support biomedical and translational research with integrative approaches
  • expand education, training, and outreach on emerging tools for our region
  • provide a coordinated infrastructure of shared research resources across our institutions and communities
